Continuando con mis aportes y recibiendo la noticia de que este año ELO lanzará nuevo disco después de 14 años de ausencia, esta vez comparto mis apreciaciones de un reciente concierto de Jeff Lynne acá en este humilde espacio cabezón. Aplicaremos el método ya varias veces explicado para este tipo de posteos.

Este concierto marca el retorno de Jeff Lynne después de más de 10 años de ausencia en el escenario. Después de su última gira Zoom en el 2001, cuyo álbum pasó sin pena ni gloria y la gira tuvo una abrupta cancelación, solamente Jeff Lynne había tenido una participación en ciertos homenajes y colaboraciones para diversos artistas.

El genio musical detrás de la Electric Light Orchestra, cuyos clásicos más de uno habrá escuchado, volvió el año pasado con su concierto en el Hyde Park de Londres. Las entradas para 50 000 personas se acabaron en cuestión de minutos y lo más rescatable de este concierto fue que, a diferencia de sus anteriores conciertos con ELO, en esta ocasión estuvo acompañado con una orquesta sinfónica (la BBC Concert Orchestra) dando como resultado el aire ELO de sus discos. 

No es difícil calificar la música de Jeff Lynne o Electric Light Orchestra como una de las más elaboradas y geniales a nivel creativo. Clásicos como All Over The World, Evil Woman, Livin' Thing o Can't Get Out Of My Head fueron tocados. Además incluyó un homenaje a George Harrison y a Roy Orbison con la clásica Handle With Care de The Traveling Wilburys. 

Para los que no conozcan nada de nada de Electric Light Orchestra les recomendaría que comiencen escuchando A New World Record, el cual a mi humilde opinión es su mejor disco. Ahí encontrán sus mejores clásicos y canciones de las mejores que uno puede escuchar en la escena de la música de este espacio cabezón, como por ejemplo Mission (A World Record).

Acá les paso el video de Mission (A World Record):

Jeff Lynne‘s triumphant revival of the Electric Light Orchestra banner for a Sept. 2014 festival performance will get the home video treatment this fall, when Jeff Lynne’s ELO: Live in Hyde Park is scheduled to arrive in stores.

The concert film, due Sept. 11, is being released on DVD, Blu-ray and digital formats, and will include the documentary Mr. Blue Sky: The Story of Jeff Lynne & ELO alongside the band’s Hyde Park live performance, which marked ELO’s first appearance on a festival stage in nearly three decades. According to the Live in Hyde Park press release, Lynne “has been involved every step of the way with every aspect of this production, especially the audio delivery.”

“It seemed like the entire 50,000 were singing and clapping along, which carried on for the whole night. The Hyde Park concert turned out to be one of the most memorable shows ever for me,” says Lynne in a statement. “It’s important to me that viewers experience the Hyde Park show exactly as it was performed on the night … in stereo.”

For Lynne, who’s spent most of the last 25 years focusing on studio work, returning to the concert stage was an experience not without its share of jitters — but one that ultimately left him wanting more.

“For the last 20 years, I’ve been sitting down in the studio playing, so you have to learn all over again how to stand up and sing and play,” he admitted last year. “Once we got that good, that tight, we wanted to play another gig, but my manager said no. We were all fired up and it would’ve been perfect time to do it.”

Happily for fans who’ve been patiently waiting for new music, Lynne evidently feels that time hasn’t passed. Saying he’s “definitely” planning on scheduling some U.S. tour dates in the near future, he revealed, “I’m working on a new album, and that’ll be involved in the new times when we play.”


Continuemos con el review de somethingelsereviews.com:

Electric Light Orchestra fans rejoiced in September 2014 when Jeff Lynne took the stage at BBC Radio 2’s “Festival in a Day” event. As the sun set over London’s Hyde Park, Lynne treated fans to a show packed with ELO hits, accompanied by the BBC Concert Orchestra.

What resulted was an almost flawless performance, thus the new DVD and Blu-ray Jeff Lynne’s ELO Live in Hyde Park is a must-own for any ELO and Lynne enthusiast.

Joined by original ELO member Richard Tandy, Jeff Lynne immediately captures the 50,000 crowd with an enthusiastic rendition of “All Over the World.” The inclusion of the Xanadu track shows Lynne has finally made peace with the songs he contributed to the 1980 movie bomb. While critics may have torn the film apart, the soundtrack has lived on as a pristine example of 1980s pop.

Frequent shots of the audience show them singing along to every word of “Living Thing,” which showcases Lynne’s still strong vocals. At first, Lynne announces he feels nervous — after all, it was the first time the band played on a festival stage in 30 years — but he displays nothing but confidence as he hits the high notes in “Evil Woman” or sings over the Beatlesque strings of “Can’t Get It Out of My Head.”

Jeff Lynne even treats fans to early hits such as ELO’s first single (and one of his earliest compositions) “10538 Overture,” which illustrates how his orchestral leanings increased as the 1970s progressed. Indeed, the live strings add majesty to “Steppin’ Out,” Lynne’s epic tale of independence and restarting one’s life. The concert consists of fun moments as well, with Lynne, Tandy and the band turning in energetic versions of “Turn to Stone” and “Don’t Bring Me Down” that keeps the crowd on its feet. The new group perfectly replicates the complex original recordings live, with “Telephone Line” retaining its intricate harmonies. Jeff Lynne even nods to Traveling Wilbury fans with “Handle with Care,” with images of George Harrison and Roy Orbison flickering on the big screen behind the band.

By the time Lynne, ELO and the BBC Concert Orchestra conclude with “Mr. Blue Sky,” one can appreciate how these songs have withstood the test of time. Combining rock, pop, and classical elements, Jeff Lynne created sophisticated tracks featuring irresistibly catchy hooks. His near-perfect performance at the “Festival in a Day” concert demonstrates his meticulous attention to detail, his voice sounding just as it did during the Electric Light Orchestra’s 1970s peak. Casual and longtime fans will enjoy revisiting — and reconsidering — these classics on Jeff Lynne’s ELO Live in Hyde Park.

    2. El método Relayer se terminó convirtiendo, de su forma primitiva que era solamente como método para poder compartir cosas tóxicas hasta ahora que me parece más un juego de búsquedas y enigmas.
      Ven y juega en el blog cabezón! Después podríamos suplantarlo por algún otro juego así la gente se entretiene :/
